ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) The National Weather Service has posted a Wind Chill Warning for much of Minnesota from 6 pm Sunday through noon Monday.

Additionally, a Wind Chill Advisory is in effect from noon Monday until 9 am Tuesday.

Another surge of cold air will build into central Minnesota Sunday night, with lows from -18 to -25.

The cold temperatures will combine with a northwest wind of 10 to 15 mph to create wind chills of -35 to -45 through Monday morning.

Only a slight moderation of temperatures is expected Monday, with highs ranging from -3 to -11.

Another very cold night is anticipated Monday night with lows of -10 to -25. Winds will be slightly lighter, but still strong enough to create wind chills of -25 to -35 into Tuesday morning.

A Wind Chill Warning means the combination of very cold air and strong winds will create dangerously low wind chill values. This will result in frostbite and lead to hypothermia or death if precautions are not taken.
